If you're watching your carb intake for foods, you must also keep track of your liquid carb intakes.

Sodas, chocolate milk, coffee with sugar all add carbs and calories - excess carbs and calories! - and if weight-loss is your objective, it's wise to modify your "drinking" habits too.

Sugar- and salt-containing beverages actually inhibit healthy weight loss and maintenance. They add no food value to a diet and actually encourage you to overeat.

I have noticed, myself, that when I have a beverage that contains sugar, my stomach feels queezy and hungry and I always want something to eat. But when I drink water or a non-sugar beverage, the cravings are minimal and much easier to resist.

I also notice that my system doesn't function as it normally would - sluggish, retain fluids, gain weight!

Even if you don't maintain or subscribe to a low-carb diet, you can take away some very good information and good eating habits.
